Fix LogiOverlay.exe – Bad Image (0xc000007b)

Lately, I ran into the LogiOverlay.exe Bad Image error after I had run Windows Update. The file igd9dxva64.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error, which results in error status 0xc000007b.

Although my Windows 10 pc still ran fine, I wasn’t sure the performance of my Intel UHD 630 was still at 100%. In this article, I’ll cover the cause of this error and how to fix it

Cause of LogiOverlay.exe – Bad Image

First of all, it is good to know that LogiOverlay has nothing to do with Logitech’s LogiLDA.dll. LogiOverlay.exe is related to the graphics drivers of the Intel video card series.

And that brings us straight to the heart of the problem. After installing Windows Update (Insider Preview probably), the video drivers have been updated. At first, I had version 26.20.100.8141. But after the Windows Update, it was updated to 29.20.100.9027.

Most of the time, the latest drivers from Intel, which are offered via Windows Update, are error-free. This seems to be the exception.

To solve the issue with igd9dxva64.dll, you’d best to delete the latest driver. This enables you to revert back to the previous version (which worked perfectly so far). Follow these steps to rollback your video driver:

  1. Click Start -> type Device Manager -> Open Device Manager
  2. Expand Display Adapters. Right-click Intel UHD Graphics 630 and choose Properties.
  3. In the Properties Windows, select the Driver tab. In the Driver tab, make note of the Driver Version. This could be something like 29.20.100.9027
    device manager properties intel udh 620
  4. Expand Display Adapters. Right-click Intel UHD Graphics 630 and choose Uninstall Device.
  5. In the popup window, select the checkbox “Delete the driver for this device.” and click Uninstall
  6. Back in the main window Device Manager, click the Scan for Hardware Changes button in the toolbar:
    Scan for hardware changes
  7. To verify the driver has been reverted to the older one, right-click Intel UHD Graphics 630 and choose Properties. In the Driver tab, notice the Driver Version is now different from the version you saw in step 3.

Done! Reboot your pc to make sure the error doesn’t appear anymore.

Manually update your Intel Graphics Driver

As you have noticed, Windows Update sometimes installs drivers that are not compatible (yet), or do not work correctly with your hardware components and software. In these cases, it may be wise to manually download and update the driver.

By default, installing Intel Graphics drivers overwrite older drivers. However, if you happen to have a newer driver installed, Intel will not always automatically detect. Therefor, it’s best to first uninstall the older driver and then install the Intel Graphics Driver from the Intel website.
